Sit-in protest in Diyarbakir enters 100th day

DIYARBAKIR, TURKEY - DECEMBER 04: A photo shows the outside of the provincial office of the Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) as mothers and fathers joining sit-in protests for their children, in Diyarbakir, Turkey. Families join a sit-in protest in order to raise their voice to save their children from the hands of YPG/PKK. A protest held by dozens of families in southeastern Turkey against YPG/PKK (PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, and the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which Turkey regards as a terror group) has entered its 100th day. The protest first began by mothers of young people who were forced or coerced into going the PKK. On Aug. 22, a Kurdish mother Hacire Akar staged a protest near the HDP office in Diyarbakir, claiming that her 21-year-old son was taken to the mountains by the YPG/PKK. And the protest started on Sept. 3 in Diyarbakir province when a mother, Fevziye Cetinkaya, said her underage son had been forcibly recruited by YPG/PKK with the help of members of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), a party accused by the government of having links to the group.
